This is a good camp. Site was reasonably level. Electric & water were both good. There is a bridge to cross and a hill to climb but not a problem for us. The pond has fish as we saw adults and children pulling out catches. Bath house was clean and has a combo lock. There is a commercial quality play area for children. The Wi-Fi never quit. We planned on 3 nights stayed extra. Owners are helpful. The town of Ripley is close and has shopping and restaurants.

Nice campground in the Monongahela National Forest. 50 miles of West Virginia winding road to access the camp. A steam railroad tour within walking distance. With one of 3 coal burning locomotives of its type in the world. The little town is cute and restaurants are there. If you want to camp in peace this is the place. Very pet friendly and horses are welcome. The Greenbrier River source is Durbin and there are campsites along it. The owners are nice and very helpful. Our site was level and easily accessed. Electric was fine and the water is municipal. A good night's sleep can be had here. We planned to stay a few days and stayed longer.

Lovely park! Beautiful pool, lakes, and grounds. Very clean everywhere. Level site with easy in and out. Typical for a Jellystone Park there were many activities for children. We are older folks concerned that we would be disturbed since this was a Friday night, however we didn't hear a sound. I would not hesitate to return here and actually look forward to staying here in the future. The park is off the freeway but their store is well stocked. The one drawback, the sewer hookup at our site was set too high.

Different! Interesting restaurant with good food. The restaurant is unusual full of taxidermy. The river sites were good for kayaking. We stayed by some older permanent trailers. Our site was level and utilities were good. Very shady & tropical. We stayed here for a weekend getaway & we rested.

Nice place to stay in town. Right by Clearwater. This is a campground that fills up with the winter season. There are permanent dwellings here as well. We stayed here for a few nights on our way home to be close to family. We had a good rate. The manager is a real nice lady and all the staff are, too. We had a lake site as someone was a no show. It was quiet here. Our site was level and utilities were good. Cable is available if you stay a month. Right around the corner is Ozona and some fun little shops. Walking trail is also close by.

Nice place. Owners were very nice and helpful. Our site was level and had good utilities. We had other campers around us but sites were ample in size. Quiet and afforded a good nights sleep. Never heard traffic considering the proximity of the freeway and main road. Park was easy to access and traverse. Would stay here again.

This is a nice, lush park. Huge trees provide shade. Owner is planting and creating seating areas: a wisteria covered arbor and friendly floral settings around the property. Owner is a neat freak, dare you to find a speck of dirt anywhere! Back of the park has a walk to the river. Some walking trails around the park too. Yes the freeway is close but it was consistent noise no braking and accelerating just constant hum so we slept good both nights we stayed. Of course the Cajun food in the area is excellent and all close by. Many places to hear music too. Digital local TV worked well as did the camp's Wi-Fi. We were led to our space. We were able to sprawl out with management's blessings as it was not busy at the time.

This park is convenient to the area. Spaces are level, power and water are good. Restrooms are extremely clean as are all common areas. The spaces are separated well. The cable was fuzzy and the Wi-Fi was sporadic. Made due with the cable and used my own Wi-Fi which doesn't make a customer feel good when paying a premium price. Some trees but no real shade is provided. Used the exercise equipment, very nice. The pool is amazing, warm, indoor and very clean. Had an unusual experience here. Someone stole away with half a washer load of laundry. Funny took my underwear and $89 Fresh Produce Nightgown, left my husbands--go figure! Hope he hangs himself with great grammy's undies. Never had this happen even when I was in college! The laundry room was very dark too, creepy. Stayed here 3 nights. Probably would find another spot to sleep next time we are in Amarillo as there are many.

Nice park with shade. Roomy pull through spaces. Forget the back in spaces, they are lined up like sardines in a can. The pull through spaces at the back behind the replica village are good. Water and electric are good and spaces are level. Didn't use the restrooms or showers. This is a large county park that encompasses over 600 acres, therefore lots of walking space. Would stay here again if in the area. Close enough to Austin to travel there easily.

This park is in the middle of an old hotel with spaces on a lot next door. The owners are planting and growing trees and patches of grass here. It is nice that the owner leads you to your site even if it is close by the office and she could easily just explain. A great help to have the lead in to show you to the space as well as the best place to stop to reach the hook ups. Site was level, electric and water were fine. Stayed here 2 nights. Price shown is total with tax. Sites are adequate in size, but there are no tables. No real amenities; however , the owners don't promote this as any more than it is, an overnight or very short term spot. Used their cable TV and it was good as was the Wi-Fi Would stay here again if passing through.

Level sites - not long, but that is what the state web site says: 35 ft. maximum. We are 34 so parked the truck elsewhere, but there are lots of places to park, so no problem. Price reflects 4 nights at $14 with $12 reservation charge to Reserve America. Our slide outs go on one side only so the width was ok for us, but could not put out our awning as the fellow next to us encroached on our space. se la vie. Water was good, electric was 30 amp and good. VERY peaceful, Restrooms and showers were clean. Dump didn't work, but working dump station at another state park on our way out of the area. Our satellite worked very well here, but no digital at all. Our Verizon card worked fine, as did our phones. We talked with folks who camped here for years who told us that the Verizon signal was new this year even the phone signal! We enjoyed ourselves here running back roads and viewing the natural beauty of the area. We drove to Mora twice and to Angel Fire and Taos. The state park rangers were very friendly and helpful. Their presence was there 7 days a week. We also visited Morphy Lake, which is reciprocal when using Coyote Creek.

This camp is far from the madding crowd. Well away from any city, grocery or any restaurant; it is a great place to enjoy the woods and the night sky. There was no digital TV reception for us and satellite was impossible due to the all the trees. Still we planned for one night and stayed a second. Price was total paid with tax using Passport. Wi-Fi was good. Site was reasonably level, had our own picnic table and a lot of side room. Our site was long, as well. This park is mostly privately owned sites with a few still in the developers' hands. Most of the sites are permanent with many embellishments. Transient sites close to the entry. Electric was good 50 amp. Water was unbelievable - filled our jars and our holding tank! Would stay here again if ever in the area. Just a nice peaceful and quiet spot.

We came to stay 2 nights on Passport, stayed a week then stayed for another week. We were not the only people to do that. Price is total with tax. Site was large, level and long enough for our total 55 feet. Roomy in width. Good digital TV reception and we used our satellite. Fifty amp electric was good. Wi-Fi was good - they had some sporadic issues not a problem for me as also can use my Verizon card, but they solved the issues quickly. The family is real nice as are the people who stay at the campground annually. In a few years there will be shade as the owners are planting and watering. This is a good location for viewing natural sites and for Colorado Springs, Canon City & Pueblo. The only drawback is the water well (source and sediment). Used 2 of the blue Walmart filters in tandem while there. Scrubbed up the shower and sinks at the next camp and all was well again. So no lingering effects from the water. The pool was nice too and a wonderful respite for the 90 plus degree days. This camp is child friendly and they take a genuine interest in all of the campers well being. This park is fast becoming one of the best camps in the area. Look forward to staying here again.

This is a great stop in the middle of nowhere. Rating it high because they do not pretend to be anything but a what they are, a stopover. There is traffic on the road, but not a lot - mostly heard cattle mooing and an owl hooting in the night. Store is sufficient, diesel is cheap, post office across the street. Strong 30 amp service and water appears almost new. Water is very good, pure and clear. Spot was level. Would definitely stay here again if in the area of 395 and 20.

This is the closest we have ever parked to a freeway. This is the noisiest park we have ever patronized. One look in the restrooms will send a wise customer packing. Hardly worth the Passport price you see here let alone the full price many reviewers have paid. Had intended to stay 2 nights, however, sleep was nearly impossible so left real early. Checking in I was told passport discount was only good for one night and could use only one discount per stay, so I paid for one night. No room to put out awning. Barely enough room for our total 55 foot length without unhooking (didn't unhook). Neighboring camper had company or visitors and many vehicles made for lots less room around our site. Trash situation brought a lot of flies to the area (reviews think it is animals, but it isn't) there is no dumpster just a lot of regular home use garbage cans overflowing and lidless. Typical dust with no foliage or trees. Good power, level site, not good water. Good reception of local channels. Would never stay here again.
